Abstract:

Theoretical studies were performed on a variety of topics related to collisions involving Rydberg atoms. Progress was made towards the understanding of ion-Rydberg atom, Rydberg atom-Rydberg atom, and ground state atom-Rydberg atom collisions. A strong dc electric field was incorporated in calculations of electron capture and ionization cross sections for ion-Rydberg atom collisions. Electron capture collisions in the presence of a strong laser field were also investigated.
